Roy Alexander Skivers passed in peace on Thursday May, 23rd, 2019 going to the home he knew was prepared for him by our Lord and Savior.

My cousin, Roy had always been one, if not my fave, of all my cousins of our generation. He had always been of gentile personality with a smile that showed just how loving he was. I have spent a lot of time talking and solving the worlds problems. I’m going to miss our talks. I love you, Roy….tap us on the shoulder once in a while just to keep us alert!
My condolences to Roy’s family. I haven’t seen Roy for a very long time, but my memories of Roy are rich and clear. Some of my most vivid memories of Roy are at the Belton Municipal Park during the summer months; especially, baseball season. Growing up with Roy in Belton, Mo. was a pleasure. Roy was one of the most gentle and gentlemanly souls I’ve known. Roy made a difference in the world and he will be missed by all of us and those who knew and loved Roy. Rest in peace, Roy.
Roy you were and will always be my favorite patient! RIP
Rhonda prayers to you! Sending you love! You are good woman!
